Turkmenistan Map
Why I Love Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan may score low on the Democracy Index (two places above North Korea) but it comes high on my list of favourite places to visit. From meeting hospitable locals at the colourful markets, where buying a piece of fruit can turn into an hour’s chat, to camping in the desert by the glowing Darvaza gas crater, this country serves up countless unique experiences.

Slovakia Map
Why I Love Slovakia
Slovakia offers everything from natural and historical beauties to friendly people and delicious food. You can visit the most fascinating places within few days but also spend years here and still discover something new every day. Whenever I visit Bratislava I love to walk its romantic streets and along the banks of the Danube.

Poland Map
Why I Love Poland
Poland is an extremely spirited country and there is a real sense of community and pride amongst its people, perhaps best exemplified by the meticulously rebuilt Old Town in Warsaw which was devastated in World War II. This positive, forward-looking attitude translates into the warm welcome that I find on every visit.

Mongolia Map
Why I Love Mongolia
I love Mongolia because to watch the sun go down from the top of the whispering sands dunes in the heart of the Gobi Desert is the closest to paradise on earth I have found – no pollution, no noise apart from the gentle whisper of sand shifting in the evening breeze, no traffic just peace, absolute peace.

Faroe Islands Map
Why I Love Faroe Islands
This remarkable archipelago boasts the highest sea cliffs in the world and for me venturing out in to the North Atlantic Ocean to discover a coastline teeming with birdlife and a significant breeding area for the Atlantic puffin was unforgettable. Faroe Islands holidays offer a unique experience.

Armenia Map
Why I Love Armenia
On our Armenia tours we can often arrange meals in private houses, where you can feast on stuffed aubergines and tomatoes, fresh cheese with coriander leaves, dolmas with yoghurt, green beans, walnuts, sweet desserts and delicious dark Armenian coffee accompanied by Armenian flatbread called lavash.

Uzbekistan Map
Why I Love Uzbekistan
I love Uzbekistan because wandering around the ancient cities of Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara you are immediately transported to another time when these were the pinnacle of Islamic architecture, culture and learning with trade routes stretching out across the empire of Tamarlane. Although much has been restored the call to prayer from the many minarets still seems to haunt the air and you can imagine the hustle and bustle of the markets crammed with exotic wares.

Slovenia Map
Why I Love Slovenia
I love Slovenia holidays because they truly have it all! In this green and pleasant land you can find scenic lakes, beautiful mountains and attractive coastline all within a couple of hours’ drive of each other. The number of activities you can fit into a short trip here is tremendous.

Bhutan Map
Why I Love Bhutan
Driving over the high ridge of the Cheli La and dropping down into the remote Haa Valley offers such stunning views that I couldn't help but fall in love with this beautiful and friendly country. Wandering the streets of the 'cosmopolitan' capital of Thimpu, where the modern world meets traditional Bhutanese culture, is a great introduction to the country but heading into the rugged mountain terrain is where the real fun begins. Passing high level chortens and seeing bright splashes of colour from collections of weather-beaten prayer flags dotting the mountain passes, these journeys alone provided me with memories to cherish forever.

Bulgaria Map
Why I Love Bulgaria
Bulgaria is beautiful through and through. Starting from the rugged Black Sea coast you can head in land and discover nothing but breathtaking scenery and magnificent national parks. In Sofia, head to the Central Market to pick up some local bread and cheeses for the perfect picnic.
